, especially north korea. and their dear leader kim jong-un. in my book he is public enemy number un. (laughter) so i was terrified to learn that pyongyang's history institute of the d.p.r.k. academy of social sciences made this shocking discovery. >> an eyebrow-raising announcement out of north korea. the state news agency there claims that archaeologists have just located an ancient unicorn lair. (laughter) >> stephen: that's right. north korea has unicorn technology. (laughter) they said i was crazy when i called far glitter defense shield armed with ballistic sparkley stickers. (laughter) folks, this brings me to threat number two, commie unicorns. (laughter) this is a huge boon to north korea. and not just because someone there has finally found a source of protein. to make this earth-shattering discovery, north korean archaeologists had to travel 200 meters from a temple in the capital city pyongyang and then look down to see a rectangular rock carved with the words "unicorn lair." (laughter) it makes sense it's labeled, how else would the mailman know where to deliver the rainbows? (laug
young leader kim jong-un domestically. >> absolutely. they have been trying since 1998 to launch a long-range missile and they failed in the previous four attempts. they succeeded in this. it's not a rocket that can deliver a major warhead. there are marriajor hurdles to >> they have done in north korea where a lot of people are starving what south korea has been unable to do. >> by choice, actually. >> they haven't launched a satellite into orbit. >> south korea has not. this will undoubtedly spur competition with south korea. you'll see that. you'll probably see south korea respond with more batteries and japan will probably already do that. you have heard that we need to spend more. we spend $10 million a year already on a missile system. it has international ramifications that are going to destabilize. this is why the security council is condemning the move. >> so how much of a real threat to the united states, whether hawaii or the west coast, is this? >> we are not threatened any more today than we were yesterday. let me give you one example. iran put a satellite in orbit in 2009.
, whatever you want to say the death of kim jong-il last december. that they are doing this test to further their own national security interests and, one of those interests is to have a robust, i would argue, nuclear deterrent against the united states. now, i would also add that they are more than willing to negotiate about that. i don't think it's inevitable that north korea would have nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles aimed at the united states but i do think they intend to try to accomplish that and this launch is a step, probably an early step, in terms of the developing that capability. jon: well the u.n., the u.s., seoul, said if you launch the missile it will be very provocative act. it could bring on new sanctions. i thought we were sanctioning everything we could in north korea. are we not? >> no, no. again a lot of new techniques have been applied developing new sanctions to iran. one of the methods to apply u.n. and e.u. sanctions of iran was to study the economy of iran. look for have anotherabilities in their financial system and their trade system and that kind of approach h
kim jong un succeeded his father almost a year ago there was some hope that maybe it was a new generation or sensible. some say rational. same generation. does it dash hopes? is this another kim? >> the style is different than his father. we saw that he spoke to the people this week. he is definitely more of a public figure. if you have a country in an economic collapse the way you get everybody together and rally them is to, is this militaristic, nationalistic, buildup. that is what he is doing. that's how the regime views staying in power. it doesn't matter if kim jong unor his father. to keep an maintain power they are using this military prowess to rally troops. you you saw the troops through the street. you heard the interview with people around the country. where half the country is starving. >> it helps him make the leadership to show i'm as tough as my dad were. we have to take a break. next up, another day closer to the deadline to the fiscal cliff. are we moving toward the brink? or away from it? begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a
. >> the state department said today that if kim jong-un wants to send his time and money in shooting off missiles rather than feeding his people that is his decision. analysts expect him to act swiftly to conduct a new nuclear test to capitalize on the boost the successful test of the rocket. the white house is looking to beijing for help, as usual. >> the chinese made clear their opposition and regret that it took place after it happened. we will continue to work with our international partners to ensure that the north korean regime is first i lated, that it is further punished for the violations of international obligations. >> the not koreans called on western nations to use reason and remain cool so that the situation doesn't "get to an undesirable direction." >> that is kind of them. now, someone who knows something, former u.s. ambassador to the united nations former governor of new mexico, bill richardson, and he traveled to north korea a few years ago. nice to see you, governor. this is bordering on absurd. what is kim jong-un caring what we do now? it is not like he is running o
making overtures to kim jong-un, who succeeded his father last year, but hasn't changed his country's belligerent tone or conduct. >> we were willing to match steps for steps. we put concrete ideas on the table. >> there has and remains a path for north korea to end its isolation, but that requires abiding by its international obligations. >> analysts expect kim jong-un to move swiftly to conduct a new nuclear test to bolster his standing within the regime. >> shepard: james rosen, thanks. >>> sort of last ditch get out the vote effort is underway now in egypt where opponents of a constitutional referendum are urging followers not to boycott the vote on saturday. protesters have been out on the streets in cairo after mohammed morsi granted himself sweeping powers to push through the draft constitution. a constitution that the critics claim cobol officer hard line islamic policy. gag palkot following it all from cairo and streaming now. greg? >> hey, shep. things are relatively quiet here in cairo right now. but they are going to get noisy again. supporters and opponentses of egyptia
obviously make the entire region much more unstable. jon: and for those who wondered whether kim jong-un had staying power as leader of north korea, he just bought himself a whole lot of time in that job, didn't he? >> well i think he showed that the capability of the north koreans has been underestimated and i think you're right. this will be a political boost for him but let's be clear. this rocket-testing program and the work with iran have been going on for decades and they have had some notable failures but each failure tells them something and each success tells them something. if they can put a payload into orbit which we concede they have apparently done, in effect they're well on the way to putting a nuclear payload anywhere on the planet. jon: two members of the original axis of evil still working together. ambassador john bolton, thank you. >> thank you. jenna: we're going to turn to some news a little closer to home now. we're following some major developments in michigan after governor rick snyder signed two bills into law making michigan the nation's 24th right it work state. n

, firing another long-range rocket. the second such launch under new leader kim jong-un. korean state tv claims the launch was successful and that the rocket delivered a, quote, peaceful satellite into orbit. >>> this is a big morning now. >> it is. he's here. >> he's here in the flesh in new york city in the studio. >> 12-12-12. happy 12-12-12. >> top 12 reasons, something. >> willie and i since 11-11-11 -- >> i was watching you. >> and we're, like, on the holiday inn over on 57th. we're going to be ready when it's 12-12-12 because that's going to be a special day. we'll make a top 12 list of the things a man should do to -- >> and we want to get this right. >> we're going to get it right. >> because we were so wrong about y2k. >> we really were. >> the millennium. >> we really were. you know what? let's not kill hamlet in the first act. we're going to give you our special top 12 list. i think it may bring a tear to your eye. let's do "politico" first. >> mike allen sitting patiently, chief white house correspondent. >> by the way, it's alex corson's anniversary today. happy anniversary
